Staffordshire village gets allotments after 40 years

A village allotment site has reopened after being closed for more than 40 years.


Over 45 allotment plots have been re-created on the former site at High Hill, Essington, which has stood abandoned for more than 40 years.

Councillor David Clifft, chairman of Essington Allotments Association said: "In just six months local residents and parish councillors have transformed the completely overgrown two acre site into a finely tended field."

Councillor Clifft added: "Over 40 people have already secured their plots and just a few remain for rent."

Anyone interested should contact councillor Clifft on 07930394399.
